I'm sure there is a way to hack PONG into the firmware. The quick control dial on the back would be perfect to play this game! Someone with skills needs to attempt this!

With the electronic level, they upgraded PONG to Tiltris - like on the Blackberry Storm. It is also how you scroll through photos during review.

The D2000 had it and the rear dial works well. :cool:

I have been keeping an eye out in this forum for 7d and 60d info, and I have to say I am now confused beyond explanation. I sense sarcasm, but as an amateur looking into becoming more than that some day soon, and I am officially terrified of spending my hard earned cash on a camera with foreshadowed focusing issues. Really hoping this is just a cruelly sarcastic thread.

Id like to be able to reassure you but sadly it is true. The 7D wont have PONG. :(

Prediction: Canon will *soon* replace the Direct Print button with a Play PONG button. We will finally get to see the shiny blue LED, although our attention will be on the PONG instead.
When: not soon enough... :rolleyes:

I think we need a "Bring back PONG" thread. :lol:
Or are we aiming too low? With the large hi-res LCDs maybe we should be demanding TETRIS. :cool:

Ooh, I can see it! 'Set' button to change the orientation of the pieces, Quick Control Dial to move it horizontally, and the shutter button to drop it down!
